  • Silent Photo - SnapPicture(); function call (Question Start/End Script) to the question(s) you want to take picture(s) in. For front camera capture add SnapPicture(true); for back camera captureSnapPicture(false); or you can call twice for both.
  • Silent Video - Add the function VideoRec.StartRecording()/VideoRec.StopRecording() to the start/end script of a question, if needed you can also verify if the function 'VideoRec.Capturing' to check if the feature is turned on
